It was never easy to make it into the medical field and every step has a test of its own. While that is true, you do not have to struggle with your Medical Assistant cover letter.
Write what you have done, but make sure you are writing only what is important to your reviewer. And do that in about 150-200 words. After reading your cover letter someone should have an idea of who you are and whether you are the one they are looking for.
To help you write your cover letter, here are some samples to take inspiration from.
